The Returned

Carlton Cuse (“Bates Motel”) is in talks to adapt the US version of French series “The Returned” – about several people, long presumed dead, who reappear – for A&E. “The Returned takes an incredibly unique approach, filled with suspense and twists and turns, to the subject of the living dead,” said A&E’s EVP and general manager David McKillop. Added FMNA CEO Thom Beers, “Having seen Fabrice Gobert’s original version and the success the series has had in France, we’re thrilled to be partnering with the team at A+E to bring this enigmatic thriller to U.S. audiences.” (Deadline)
